Went a slow time. Husband got a seafood platter way over priced for 6 pieces of seafood. Had to flag down waitress for refills even though there were only 3 tables being used in the whole place, never again, go to big als or spars.

A great friendly spot with at tentative servers and a laid back atmosphere with excellent food. It ain't white table cloth but table cloths do not make a restaurant good.

A typical Cajun restaurant. Best described by a mature gent who said this when I asked if he was the owner as we walked in. "No, but I have helped pay the mortgage for the owner for over 20 years," was his response. We understood why. From oysters to crawdads to crab to étouffée and more. GREAT

Restaurant is very well decorated and has a large selection of seafood. They cooked my fried oysters just as I requested. Waitress very friendly.

We decided to stop into Houma looking for some authentic cajun food while on our way to New Orleans and ran across Critters. Hoping for some crawfish, I asked our waitress how much per pound and about fell out when she told me $5 something per pound. I do not remember the exact price, but I do know I have... More

Double-check any to-go orders. They are 1/2 of what you paid. Order was half of what we paid. very dissappointing for the price.
